Christmas ornament



This week's Cuttlebug Challenge is to make something other than a card, and over at Wednesday Stamper, we're to use bows. I'm creating several of these, in different colours, to include in Christmas cards for special friends. For this one, I alcohol-inked glossy cardstock, cut it with the Cuttlebug Christmas Tag die, embossed it with the Winter House and Swiss Dots embossing folders, then added the ribbon and some beads with a Swarovski Crystal heart. The ornament looks the same on the other side as well. I've done these before and attached them to Christmas cards, but I must say, I like them better all alone as "tuck-ins." That way, I can use more beads too! (lol) I've decided
to use this one as "car bling," and will hang it from my
rearview mirror as a little festive touch as I drive
from Nova Scotia to Quebec to spend the holidays
with my daughter, son, and grandkiddies.
Ooohhh, I LOVE Christmas!

Thanks for the challenges, and thank YOU
for taking some time to stop by my blog today!

This is so lovely, I thought that you had used foil for the ornament. Amazing what gloss card can do.
